Jake, with his Sunday Post: Arrangement, inspired me to do something I have been putting off for several months, create and photograph a still life image of a dried arrangement of roses. The roses have been patiently sitting atop my refrigerator for some time reminding me daily that it wants its portrait made. And I have had an itch to create a series of still life images, something new for me to explore.
I am finding the challenge is two fold: to create an interesting composition with the things in your still life and then light the subject in such a way to enhance the mood or feeling you are trying to create. So far, the lighting has proved to be the most difficult.
